  •     Cash, cash equivalents and financial instruments of the Company amounted to €255.8 million ;
  •     Broad innovative pipeline including three clinical-stage programs; expect first clinical data in 2016;
  •     Two new proprietary preclinical programs anti-CD39 and anti-CD73 presented at AACR meeting.

Innate Pharma SA (the “Company” - Euronext Paris: FR0010331421 – IPH) today announced its revenues and cash position for the first three months of 2016.

Cash, cash equivalents and financial instruments of the Company amounted to €255.8 million as of March 31, 2016, including short term investments (€51.2m) and non-current financial instruments (€37.5m). At the same date, financial liabilities amounted to €3.6 million.

Revenues for the first three months of 2016 amounted to €5.7 million (€0.4 million for the same period in 2015). This revenue results from Innate Pharma’s collaboration and licensing agreement with Bristol-Myers Squibb and co-development and commercialization agreement with AstraZeneca:

  •     €5.5 million resulting from the agreement with AstraZeneca, corresponding to the recognition over the period of the initial payment received in June 2015;
  •     €0.2 million relating to the agreement with Bristol-Myers Squibb resulting from the recognition over the period of the upfront payment received in July 2011.

In 2015, revenue for the first three months resulted mainly from the recognition of the upfront payment from the agreement with Bristol-Myers Squibb.
Hervé Brailly, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Innate Pharma, commented: “During the first quarter of 2016, our pipeline of innovative immuno-oncology candidates continued to progress and expand. At the AACR  2016 Annual Meeting, we presented data supporting the development of our clinical and preclinical programs, including two new programs targeting the tumor microenvironment. We are proud of these programs which further demonstrate our unique positioning in immuno-oncology.

At the same time, our most advanced programs moved forward in their clinical development. A Phase I clinical trial was started by AstraZeneca that is testing our first-in-class NKG2A checkpoint inhibitor, monalizumab, in combination with durvalumab (AstraZeneca/ MedImmune’s PD-L1 inhibitor). This fifth trial completes the roll-out of the initial clinical plan, due to start reading out in 2017. With regards to lirilumab, our first-in-class anti-KIR checkpoint inhibitor, the DSMB  completed its sixth assessment of the Phase II EffiKIR study in March and recommended continuation of the trial without modification. Data on the primary endpoint are expected in the second half of 2016.”
